What version of Go are you using (go version)?

go version go1.9 linux/amd64 (cross-compiled to darwin)

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?


What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

GOGCCFLAGS="-fPIC -m64 -pthread -fmessage-length=0 -fdebug-prefix-map=/tmp/go-build170408252=/tmp/go-build -gno-record-gcc-switches"

What did you do?

I've built the official released binaries for restic on Linux for darwin. A user reported a kernel crash on a Mac with Sierra. According to the user, the machine is otherwise rock solid. The stack trace is:

Anonymous UUID:       72A2DB74-5BE6-0759-EAAF-962BC14E3A29

Is this reproducible? How easily?

Unfortunately I don't see any useful information in that panic report. I don't even see which system call was executing or anything. Perhaps others can pull out something useful.

If we can reproduce the problem, then ideally we could get the Darwin equivalent of an strace showing the system call sequence that led to the crash.

I'll try to find that out, thanks!

It looks like it's faulty memory, the user managed to crash the kernel with the Apple Hardware Test and memtest86. I'm therefore closing this issue. Thanks!
